From the nearest subway exit, itsa bit disorienting, and might be a challenge to find. But just ask directions, and brace a bit of a walk. The temple is fairly affordable, plus they give you joss sticks for your prayers. There is a food stall...More

Not the biggest temple and a great place to visit in Nanjing. From the temple you can pay extra to walk the wall over looking Xuanwu lake. At festival times the temple is full of locals in prayer.

I loved visiting this temple as it was so authentic but a little more modern. My favorite part was that they gave us incense sticks that came with the entrance fee and that there were real monks walking around practicing. Good authentic experience with plenty...More

The vegetarian restaurant at the temple is the main reason to visit Jiming temple. "Meat" and "fish" dishes are tasty and affordable. Down to earth and porkpular with locals. A picture menu with English text makes ordering easy.

This is a very special temple and well worth not only the visit but the RMB25 entrance fee. However, the temple is built onto a hillside and visiting requires climbing many, many, very steep stone stairways. Also, the site is spread out left and right,...More

The temple is very popular amongst locals and a good place to go to before heading to Xuanwu Lake and the Ming City Wall which are within walking distance. However, you would need to climb quite a number of stairs to reach the temple and...More

The Jiming Temple is a main attraction in Nanjing. You get wonderful city views from the temple while seeing an ancient religious site. Admission includes three incense sticks to burn and place in a cauldron. A definite must see attraction!
